This is a great low maintenance shrub, hardy enough to be used for council plantings, and attractive enough for the home garden. Upright and dense in growth, it has cream-lime flowers in autumn and winter. It attracts birds to the tubular pendulous flowers. Drought and frost hardy. Good for clay to well drained loams. Needs little attention, maybe a light trim to encourage a more dense habit from time to time.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
